    March 11, 2013 1:28 pm Gotham Central and Johns' Teen Titans were the first two DC books I started reading, so this page hold a special little part of my heart. It also reminds me of how much I hate the New 52 versions of these characters...
    March 11, 2013 1:23 pm I totally agree. I've been digging Snyder's run, but might jump off to trades if it's just going to continue to lurch from big event to big event like this. It makes me miss Dini!
    March 11, 2013 1:19 pm Man, Slott's She-Hulk run was so good. They need to put out an omnibus of that stuff. Bobilo's art was sort of up and down, bu that series was just so much fun otherwise.

    So...That happened...I guess?

    Admittedly I'm coming into this whole event with something of a ho hum attitude (DC editorial needs to be culled, and swiftly, but that's a discussion for a different place) but this really was a mess. Though honestly the issues with this book have little to do with Morrison or Jones.

    Fifty-something weeks ago Countdown began, and still high from the adreneline rush that was 52, I decided to pick it up. Forty-something weeks ago I was losing interest, but feeling that if I wanted to enjoy Final Crisis I would need to understand the events that led up to it, I stayed on board. Something-teen weeks ago, after Countdown had gone completely off the rails and become an unreadable mess, I still flipped through my roomate's copy to at least see what this was all counting down to. Today was the straw that broke the camel's back though.

     

    Seriously DC, what the hell was the point of forcing your readers to purchase a 52 issues lead-in to Final Crisis if you're completely going to ignore it? These aren't small continuity gliches either! Wasn't the entire point of both The Death of the New Gods and Countdown that Orion had killed Darksied? Why are the Moniters appearantly exactly the same as they were at the start of 52? Weren't Superman and a bunch of heroes witnesses to Orion and Darksied's final battle?

     

    The Libra stuff really did intrest me, and I am interested to see if this really does end up being Morrison's DCU magnum opus, so I will pick up the next issue. I just think that it's really low of DC to sell a false bill of goods to its readers. They bilked a lot of people out of a lot of money and really disrespected Paul Dini by forcing him to write the story they demanded, and then not even having it matter in the end.

    May 14, 2008 8:36 pm Awsome pick Conor! I was afraid that given the sales of Cornell's equally awesome Wisdom miniseries people would overlook this. If you enjoyed this you need to check that series out! It's all collected in a trade so should be easy to track down.
    February 14, 2008 1:16 am I really hate to be the voice of dissent, but I really don't get the way everyone raves about this title. I mean it's good. It's just not excellent. And I'm actually a big Winick fan> It's a solid book, it just doesn't knock my socks off.
